We bring you a story of unfinished business and an artist named Elec Simon.

Glass blower Mark Sudduth confesses to not being much of a dancer - and yet, he finds the art of creating his large glass sculptures like a hot, steamy dance.

Good music resonates with stories of love, hate, jealousy and other emotions. This week, the Cleveland Orchestra ups the ante on the listening experience by adding visuals to the operatic performance of The Cunning Little Vixen. To pull it off, the producers are turning Severance Hall into a movie theater with three screens and high-powered projectors.
